Madeline Island Chamber Music is pleased to present Brooklyn Rider in concert on Madeline Island. Brooklyn Rider offers eclectic repertoire in gripping performances that continue to attract legions of fans and draw rave reviews from classical, world, and rock critics alike. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette raves, “They are four classical musicians performing with the energy of young rock stars jamming on their guitars, a Beethoven-goes-indie foray into making classical music accessible but also celebrating why it was good in the first place.”
This concert will include the WORLD PREMIERE of a newly-commissioned work for string quartet by New York-based Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, violinist, and vocalist Caroline Shaw.
* Madeline Island Chamber Music commission this piece to honor our former Board Chair Caroline Marshall for her remarkable and many contributions to our organization
